Portland, OR asked in Business Formation, Business Law, Civil Litigation and Employment Law for Oregon

Q: My employer has been breaking multiple employment laws , he removed his hard drive when he switched payroll co. Strange?

I didn't receive any online paystubs for my direct deposit the entire time my employer used this online payroll company . He switched companies and got a new computer , him and his friend that switched out computers , put up a bunch of security cameras all over the resteraunt. I find this strange because I asked why my x wasn't receiving my garnishments , he said he was sending them and he didn't know why she wasn't getting them. He told me later that he was sending them to Oregon child support , he lied and I confirmed it. What should I do ? I was told to quit and get a lawyer , he refused to tell me the name of the online payroll company. I didn't quit I started learning about employment laws in Oregon . I think I was suspended indefinitely instead of fired because I started making him obey the law. The Oregon sick pay , child support , the demands of him showing draws on my paystubs instead of not paying hours ? He was afraid to be audited and I think that's why he replaced comput.

A: Greetings,

This sounds very bad.

I might be willing to help, but first I need to know who is the employer and owner of the business. Also, where you worked and when this all happened.
